Morning!

I just realised this morning that Photobucket no longer allow 3rd party hosting..

It's the only reason I ever used Photobucket so i'm not paying for it!

What does everyone else use?

Ideally something with a mobile app that you can use to upload directly from the phone..

Thanks

I know it's not much, but considering the only place I ever use it is for this forum - I don't think it's worth it. I think my total uploads since I started using it around 10years ago was 100Mb!! lol

I never actually looked at the costs..

Looks like they want £309 a year for 3rd party hosting! The lower subscriptions don't allow it..

Ladies and gents, I have some good news!

If you use Chrome, install this extension:

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/photobucket-fixer/ogipgokcopooepeipngiikdkpmcpkaon/related

No idea how - but it seems to work..

I tried to view a guide on the Fanatics site and saw the usual hotlinking replacement images.. Found this, installed it, and now can view the intended images fine!

Obviously wont work if the original poster of the guide has deleted his Photobucket account (like me).

And a Firefox version (i've not tested)
